Orgues Létourneau, St-Hyacinthe, Québec, Canada, begins a new chapter in the company’s history.

Fernand Létourneau sold the company last November to Dudley Oakes; 2019 was Orgues Létourneau’s fortieth year of continuous operation. Over this time, the company has built over 140 new pipe organs around the world and has rebuilt or restored countless others.

The Diapason’s September cover feature offered a conversation with Fernand Létourneau, along with essays by Andrew Forrest and Dudley Oakes, and profiles of the Létourneau team.  For information: http://letourneauorgans.com/en/index.php
